Books Info:

Anna Fox free pdf For two years British photographer Anna Fox documented holiday culture at the iconic Butlin's resort in the seaside town of Bognor Regis, West-Sussex. The work marked the 75th anniversary of this leisure brand, and provided a unique insight into contemporary British holiday culture. Butlin's is a British institution and an established cultural phenomenon, with a very particular character, history and Identity. Having attracted tens-of-millions of holidaymakers since its creation in 1936, the popularity of Butlin's peaked in the 1970s, but today it remains a thriving centre for family holidays and themed leisure breaks.
Shot using large-format, Fox's deeply saturated color photographs provide a fascinating update to a holiday icon most often associated with the golden era of British seaside culture, in contrast to the popular themed adult weekends now on offer and which will be the subject of "Resort 2, "the second book by Anna Fox planned to be published by Schilt Publishing in 2014.
"Resort 1 "includes essays by David Chandler, Stephen Bull and Dr. Roni Brown.
